Torin Scissor Jack
What would we want with an automative jack in a city apartment? This sleek red jack has a hand crank that allows us to lift way-heavy items during our errant improvisations. For example, rather than keep calling a strong friend or the super for help, we used it to lift our bed frame up multiple times while we tried out various materials to dampan a vibration coming through the floor.
It will lift up to 1.5 tons from 3.65 to 15.4 inches high.
Then it folds away to store in our tool closet ready to help us with the next too-heavy things we want to lift. (Although it’s so cool looking, we have thought of leaving it out in its raised position, sans crank, to serve as a little side table or pedestal for books.
